    Limit to Super Sport's tire size is the chainstays width, you'll have around 42mm to fit the tire, 33~35mm actual tire width is close to the limit with 5mm per side clearance. I don't have Honjos, but 45mm Planet Bike or SKS are as big a fender as I am able to fit. The front fork and rear chainstays are limiting the max fender width.

    BTW, these measurements are from several Super Sport/Sports Tourer frames I have, actual measurements from frame in question.

    Well, Super Sports came with 27x1 1/4" tires, so... 27"x32mm. So you'll probably want 43-45mm fenders.

    You could. But why? Raleighs have nice enough looking fenders.

    Maybe the VO variants? I've never seen 26" Honjo's.
